Incredible first job opportunity
Editorial Assistant (Current Employee) – Medford, MA – January 15, 2018
Wiley is an amazing place to work when you are just starting out. The office is well-lit and full of remarkable people.
However, the job itself can be incredible stressful. Some of the higher-ups don't seem to communicate well, so it's easy to get conflicting messages when working on projects. The role also seems to be shifting more towards sales, which I do not believe is appropriate for some of our societies or libraries.
The pay is also substandard and raises and promotions are limited.
Editorial assistants rarely stay for too long, but it is a great way to get office training and figure out how to stay afloat in a demanding role.
